I am new to carp fishing and have what may be a stupid question. I found a spot on a river with a ton of carp and tried to catch them with corn and bread both on the bottom and under a cork and no luck. I wasn't using any fancy rigs and wasn't chumming. So I did a bit of research, and I want to go try and catch some of them using packbait but my question is, will the current in the river just sweep the packbait downstream once it breaks up and just leave the corn pop all by itself? This section of river is below a dam and has moderate flow. If using packbait in a river isn't a good idea, does anyone have any other suggestions for a beginner? Thanks
OK, I'm ready! I would like to hook up with someone (no pun intended) and wet a line for some big fish. The weekdays are best as weekends are taken with grandson's baseball games and church. I would also like to take a detailed look at carpin' rods as I build custom rods and would like to see what they look like up close; also get some feedback from carpers. Also, I would like to catch carp on a fly rod but don't really know where to go. I live in Cleveland, TN and can be reached on this forum or through my website at www.hiwasseecustomrods.com (under construction and updating). Carpe diem- Latin- ten pound carp.
